Note: Now open to the general public. The intention of this program will be to offer a space for those affected by the 2019 Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting, to come together for guided walks that will build connections and foster healing and well-being. A trauma-trained therapist will be present for all walks and provide an opportunity for debriefing and psychoeducation.
